In this week's episode, we're talking about priorities: the ones we have, the ones we think we should have, and the ones we'd like to reorder, if we're being honest. We push back a little against the myth of balance and having it all, choosing instead to view life through the lens of seasons—where sometimes we have the capacity for "full steam ahead" in multiple areas and sometimes it feels like everything but survival is on the back burner. We also discuss how priorities aren't prescriptive; our individual circumstances and personalities weigh heavily on where we devote our time and energy. Regardless of the season you find yourself in, we hope today's conversation leaves you feeling energized to identify and prioritize what matters most to you.

In this week's episode, we're talking about the everyday deals and coupons we use to save on our household necessities (and the occasional splurge, as well). From promo codes and our favorite apps to how we shop sales and use referral credits, today we're sharing our best tips and tricks for saving a buck or two. This is not a deep dive into the nitty gritty of monthly budgeting, but rather a lighthearted chat about our individual approaches to how we stretch—and spend—our dollars.  Visit Coffee + Crumbs for links to everything mentioned in this episode (including loads of promo codes and affiliate links!)  To help fund Season Four of the Coffee + Crumbs podcast, head on over to our Patreon support page.

This week, Ashlee and Indiana sit down with Beth Silvers and Sarah Stewart Holland from Pantsuit Politics to talk about something important that seems to have gotten lost in today's culture: nuance. Beth and Sarah explain how their communication approach—rooted in curiosity and a desire to understand—highlights the middle ground between argument and apathy. They also talk about how they've learned to move toward each other and a better relationship, even though they hold opposing viewpoints on many issues. Plus, they drop their best suggestions for how to stay informed in an unbiased, non-time-consuming way. Visit Coffee + Crumbs for links to everything mentioned in this episode.

This Is How We Do: Holidays

This Is How We Do: Holidays

2019-10-1500:42:291

Today we're talking about our approach to the holidays—from April's Buddy the Elf level enthusiasm from October straight through New Year's to Indiana's more measured approach. We chat about our favorite holiday traditions and how we balance all the time grabs by extended family and friends. Whether elaborate baked goods for the whole neighborhood are your thing or, like Ashlee, you're more comfortable with every boxed mix Trader Joe's offers, you'll feel right at home in this week's conversation.

At the end of September, most of the Coffee + Crumbs team came together live and in person (!!) for four days in the Pacific Northwest. We weathered an unexpected blizzard, ate all the food, passed around babies, and spoke truth and encouragement into one another's dreams. On our last night together, we sat in the living room of Katie Blackburn's parents' home (who graciously welcomed all 15 of us when we had to evacuate from the mountain), and captured our conversation—and giggles—for your listening pleasure. We all rank our degree of nervousness pre-retreat, recap our funniest and favorite moments from our time together, and speak to the "secret sauce" that connects us to one another in a way that transcends our typical expectations of friendships.

This Is How We Do: Toys

This Is How We Do: Toys

2019-10-0100:42:402

Today we're talking all things toys: the ones our kids have loved and played with endlessly, the ones we don't let across our thresholds, and the ones that will haunt our nightmares forever (ahem, we're looking at you, April, and your ventriloquist dummy, Charlie). We cover avoiding the lost lovey disaster and controlling the stuffed animal collection that threatens to take over the bed, plus we run through our favorite, road-tested toy picks in every age group. You'll want to bookmark our show notes for your holiday shopping!

Today's episode is coming from a more serious and somber place, as we talk about some of the hardest seasons in life that we've walked through. From miscarriage and postpartum depression to infidelity and cancer diagnoses, we're sharing some stories publicly for the very first time and inviting you into our little "circle of trust" this week. This isn't just about clearing the skeletons from the closet though; we're also talking about the most helpful ways our people showed up for us during these difficult times and the lessons we've learned about how to take care of each other when the season is hard and the answers aren't coming easily.  Show Notes: Visit Coffee + Crumbs for links to everything we talked about in this episode.  To help fund Season Four of the Coffee + Crumbs podcast, head on over to our Patreon support page!  
This Is How We Do: Mornings

This Is How We Do: Mornings

2019-09-1700:48:022

This week we're talking about what mornings look like in our households. Spoiler alert: they're a far cry from our pre-kid days of leisurely sipping coffee while meticulously applying makeup and thoughtfully pulling together a coordinated outfit. In this conversation, Ashlee breaks down her new-ish routine designed to make mornings as non-chaotic as possible, April extols the virtues of doing allthethings the night before, and Indiana blows our minds when she confesses her children get up before she does AND fix their own breakfasts. From the pep in our step courtesy of the school system's tardy policy to our tactics for not yelling at our kids to just get their shoes on already (why is it always the shoes?), today we're breaking down our best efforts to start our days off on the right foot.

I had a c-section which was crazy! I was in inactive labor for three days then had an emergency c-section in the evening of the third day. My husband was so supportive and I wouldn't change it for the world ❤ My son turns two in August and we are beyond thankful for the doctors that got him here safely.

This was an amazing episode, but I noticed that there was an echo from the microphone in the studio. Can that be fixed?

I was 4 months pregnant and flying bymyself with my 16month old. i have prolonged morning (all day) sickness during my pregnancy and was on medication for it, but the take off and landing was really hard on me. i was sitting beside a man on pur last flight that was super short and basically taking off and landing the entire time. the whole flight the guy (he said he had a nephew but no kids of his own) was so kind while my son bugged him to play with his lego. then while landing (so i couldnt get up) i started puking. this amazing guy held my son and distracted him while i was stuck sitting there puking my guts out in the paper bag. this guy he was an angel sent by God, and cpuldnt have been more gracious in this incredibly embarrassing situation.
